Traveled to Pittsburgh for freshman Pitt Start Program. The hotel was very convenient for activities at University of Pittsburgh. The hotel was clean and quiet. The parking in and out privliges per day at $10 was a great bargain.

I stayed at the Wyndham many times in the last few months. Repeatedly, Stacey has "gone the extra mile" to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Actually, I have been able to work successfully while staying at this hotel in no small part because Stacey has seen to it that my environment is conducive to what I need. She is a real gem in a world of mediocrity! Please cherish and reward her employment with you.

Thank you very much for the very positive review about your stay at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center during your first visit to Pittsburgh. We are delighted you enjoyed the service from our staff, particularly Stacy at the front desk. I will share with her your comments and we feel the same as you do relative to her guest service skills.

Stayed there this weekend for a wedding (which seemed like the hotel was hosting lots of - we heard 7!). The bar was always crowded and lively with great service. We weren't in our room much, but we have no complaints. There was a mis-communication about our reservation - with them saying we were only staying for one night. I could find no e-mail confirmation from the Holiday Inn from when I booked it on the phone. But the front desk attendant was great in responding and making accommodations for us during their sold out night. My only complaint were the elevators. They ran very, very slowly! We would have been more than happy to take stairs up the 7 flights - as it probably would have been faster - but there was no easy access.

Room Tip: Was happy with our room not too close - but close enough to the elevator.

Thank you for such a favorable review of your recent stay with us at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center. On busy weekends the elevators are heavily used slowing the service. The conclusion of our renovation is modification of the elevators later this year which will greatly improve their efficiency during heavy demand. Thank you for choosing Wyndham.
